Why the Carbs in our All Plant Endurance Fuels are a Game-Changer

Our All Plant Endurance Fuels are completely changing the world of sports nutrition for endurance athletes and sports enthusiasts.

If sports nutrition was a football team, the pampered star of the show would undoubtedly be protein. Protein grabs all of the headlines. It’s the one that revels in all of the plaudits. The one people obsess over. However, carbohydrates are the workhorse; the player in the middle of the park dictating play. Pushing forward. Fuelling the squad. Although protein is an essential part of any endurance athlete’s nutritional repertoire – especially during recovery – carbohydrates form the engine room which gets you from A to B. Here at BACX, we want to give credit where it’s due, which is why we have created our innovative range of products using plant-based carbs.

Although sports drinks containing glucose, fructose and other carbohydrates are nothing new, we have forged forward with a science-led and holistic approach not yet seen in the industry. Read on to find out what makes our products so special.

THE IMPORTANCE OF CARBOHYDRATES FOR ENDURANCE FUEL STRATEGIES

High-quality carbohydrates are essential for optimal physical performance. Over the past few decades, studies have pointed to carbohydrates as the principal macronutrient for sustaining and improving athletic performance and endurance. Although we now know the critical roles that branched-chain amino acids and electrolytes also play in sports nutrition, quality carbohydrates remain paramount.

Carbohydrates are the most important source of fuel for the body. Combined with water in a carbohydrate drink, this macronutrient is absorbed into the bloodstream to provide effective energy for sports enthusiasts and athletes. The result is improved performance.

HOW THE CARBS IN OUR PRODUCTS ARE DESIGNED FOR OPTIMUM PERFORMANCE

Carbohydrates can be split into two very basic, and reductive, families; fast-release and slow-release. Fast-release carbohydrates provide an instant hit of energy. They can get you the performance you need immediately, but only for a short period before you are hit with an equally immediate crash. Slow-release, or complex, carbohydrates are important for sustained energy, but too much of them alone can dampen your ability to access the on-demand energy you need to perform. Therefore, a balance is required.

Our drinks use unrefined super food carbohydrates which are balanced and have the best nutritional profile to provide you with a constant source of energy. This ensures that you’re never left feeling fatigued; even at the sharp end of an arduous endurance challenge.

OUR ENDURANCE FUEL MIX CREATES AN EQUILIBRIUM BETWEEN FUEL AND HYDRATION

When mixed with water, BACX Endurance Fuel Mix contains a balance of food for energy, and hydration. By combining the right amounts of water with carbohydrates, our products ensure that your body can convert fuel into energy efficiently. Without this vital equilibrium, carbs can be difficult to digest and you can even be left with a severely upset stomach.

WE TAILOR OUR PRODUCTS FOR DURATION, INTENSITY AND GENDER

One of the huge flaws with most of the carbohydrates drinks already on the market is that they take a uniform approach to nutrition. Whether you’re an athlete or a sports enthusiast, your body will have different nutritional requirements depending on the type, intensity and duration of your chosen exercise. Your body’s nutritional needs will also vary depending on your sex, because nutrient intake is also a function of body composition. For instance, on average, men are of a heavier set than women, which means they require more nutrients.

As all of these elements create diverging nutritional needs in the body, it is simply not logical, nor nutritionally valuable, to have uniformed products with little to no information about the type of activity they are suitable for. This is something we have addressed at BACX, by tailoring our products based on gender, exercise duration and intensity.
